have and will take responsibility for their action and therefore they had free will and they're going to take the consequences for that. the problem is when we start actually believing the rhetoric, we actually start believing what we're saying, if you think that, if you use free will normatively, used as a value judgment about when somebody should have to take responsibility and you use it that way in the criminal law, what happens is it starts bleeding over into what i call thequasi- criminal law which is civil commitment. in the civil commitment area, we also use this notion of free will that we generally call volitional control, but we use it in the classic example today because it's so high profile are sexually violent predators. sexually violent predators under constitution the supreme decisions in kansas versus hendricks and kansas versus crane, the supreme court said that under the constitution in order to civilly commit, to not criminally, but to civilly commit a sexually violent predator, you have to demonstrate two independent factual constructs. one is you have to demonstr
for your hard work. the next item on the agenda is discussion and possible action regarding amendments to cfro. first let me check with the commissioners, are we okay going forward? does anybody need a short break? >> fine. >> fine. >> mr. st. croix would you like to introduce this agenda item? >> so during the summer days of the mayoral campaign, the most recent mayoral campaign, we had issues that presented themselves to us that were new to san francisco in that there were campaign -- let me take that word back. there were committees organized to draft ed lee to run for mayor. he was at the time considered to be a caretaker who was to fill the vacancy until the next election could be held. there were at least three sump committees, i think maybe four and some of them raised good sums of money. and my concern was that they were functioning as campaigns without actually being campaigns. the commission decided that they weren't campaigns under current law. but i think the commission agreed that the raising and spending of that size of money was not designed by the voters to be so
. that is critical and sometimes we pass the policies and our actions never conform with the policies that we pass, so if we're serious about reaching that goal in 10 years i think we really need to get serious and that's why cleanpower sf is so important, but in closing i want to go back again and harp on my jimmy carter issue of earlier and i'm going to take this quote. it says "soon after jimmy carter installed solar panels on the white house. a generation from now i think this is in the 70's or early 80's the solar heater can be a surcosity, a museum piece, a example of a road not taken, or a small part of one of the greatest adventures under taken by the american people and harness the power of the sun and move away from the crippling dependence on foreign oil, and again at that point we can say that the solar panels were a museum piece. i am hoping cleanpower sf isn't this interesting idea that creeped up and disappeared because of all the misinformation and whatever that certain interests will probably have in seeing this sort of plan not succeed, so again when i was 16 my first venture
action in all of these areas because in the words of the president, surely we can do better than this. ♪ >> jennifer: last friday at 4:30 in the morning under the cover of darkness the michigan legislature passed a bill that would allow gun owners to carry concealed weapons into hospitals, churches bars stadiums day care centers and schools. and just a few hours after the legislature passed that bill 26 people including 20 children were killed. gunned down at the elementary school in sandy hook elementary. the governor said that has given him clear pause. i beg your rick snyder please veto those bills and stop the madness, but here is what he is up against. 24 michigan lawmakers are acting on behalf of alec that conservative group that drafts gun legislation for lawmakers, and alec has been bank rolled by the nra. michigan's alec chair cosponsored the extreme gun legislation that rammed through the house and senate last week. but this is not just about michigan. michigan has been passing some crazy bills these last few weeks, but this is much broader. alec's le
with the white house. there are things that could be done by executive action. let's watch. >> somebody said to me, well, it's a republican issue. let me tell you it's not a republican issue. if i remember my history, the first two years of the last obama administration congress and the senate and the white house were all in the hands of the democrats, and they did nothing, so spare me that it's only the democrats. >> perhaps the mayor is forgetting that you need 60 votes in the senate to get anything done, but be that as it may, his point is well taken. we all have a responsibility now to go forward to get something done, and it should be bipartisan, and i think it can be. whatever the president can do by executive or administrative direction, high pressure that he will do. i also think we all have a responsibility to tell the children that we did everything in our power to protect them, and i think this is different. for some reason it's different. children die all the time in ener cities and the rest. it's always tragic. somehow or other this has pushed it all over the top, and i think th

indicated the president is ready to take action. >> while he is actively supportive of, for example senator feinstein's stated intent to revive a piece of legislation that would reinstate the assault weapons ban he supports and would support legislation that addresses the problem of the so-called gun show loophole. >> jennifer: yes! speaker nancy pelosi also pledged to renew the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004. and to do so soon. >> right away today, this week, we could pass the ban on the assault magazine and the larger sense, let's go down the path of banning the assault weapon. i think there is a better chance to do that now than ever. >> jennifer: those remarks come after california democratic senator dianne feinstein pledged to introduce similar legislation yesterday. there are even some republican senators who might be on board! a spokesman for senator marco rubio told "tampa bay times" that he is, rubio is "looking for public policy changes that would prevent such a horrible event from happening again and
secretary john bryson >> bill: a lot of talk about gun control. will we see any action this time? good morning everybody. what do you say? good to see you today. it is tuesday december 18. this is the "full court press." we're coming to you live from washington, d.c. hope you're off to a good start wherever you happen to be in this great land of ours. obviously i'm not. and it is great to see you. invite you to join the conversation any time by giving us a call at 1-866-55-press. or sending us a little tweet message on twitter at bpshow. we're following you at bpshow. and on facebook. facebook.com/billpressshow here in our nation's capital. there is word that after president obama and speaker boehner met yesterday at the white house in the oval office for some 45 minutes there is word that they're getting closer to a deal. i was out for dinner last night when i got a quick text from the white house saying president obama had agreed to up the limit on the tax cut from $250,000 to $400,000 meaning that under that pla

democrat in the house. made it clear the time for action is now. >> i think there's a better chance to do that now than ever. not that one child's life is more important than another person's life, but the volume, the impact of this that every child can feel vulnerable. the fact there's been so many events in close proximity and timewise to each other that this is almost a tipping point. >> it is a tipping point. democrats are looking to push a bill this week that would ban high-capacity magazines. like those used in newtown. it's not just the white house. it's not just congress. today there's major news out of michigan where the republican governor rick snyder has vetoed legislation that would allow concealed weapons in churches and schools and day care centers. new polls show support for stricter gun control is at a ten-year high. the company that owns the gun maker that produced the rifle used in last week's massacre plans to sell it. calling the shooting a quote, water shed event. and dick sporting goods has suspend the sale of modern sporting rifles in all of their change. this is ch
? why can't there be legislative action immediately if there's the desire of the people and overwhelming numbers show 57% if not higher asking americans if they want stricter gun controls, that i say yes. why does it have to be one or the other, mental health or some type of reasonable or sensible common sense ban on certain weapons? >> m-o-n-e-y. the republican party gets 80% or 90% of the money the nra dolls out to buy them and as a result it's always everything except for the gun but the reality is and people are smarter than this, there's always been mental illness. there's always been evil in our society. but what we now have is unrestricted access to military-style killing machines with bullets that were used to riddle the babies' bodies on friday. designed to maximize soft tissue damage. i mean, come on. and these members of congress look the other way and say it's everything but. they're just in the pocket of the nra and the democrats haven't been much better. we can get real substantive national gun laws that could save real people's lives and we can stop allowing congress to le
to take action this time around. >> cenk, the president himself is not delineated what he's going to do, nor do we expect him just today to wake up and say this is what our plan is, the white house jay carney was a little circumspect but understanding that there will be some action. the president last night though took to well it was the airwaves, but also to a gathering, an ecumenical gathering of service remembrance in newtown connecticut. here is the president speaking first about his reflection of what happened there. >> obama: can we honestly say that we're doing enough to keep our children all of them, safe from harm? i've been reflecting on this the last few days. if we're honest with ourselves the answer is no. we're not doing enough. we will have to change. since i have been president this is the fourth time we have come together to comfort a grieving community torn apart by mass shootings. we can't tolerate this any more. these tragedies must end. and to end them they must change. >> yeah, he's tolerated them for quite awhile, though. that guy has a lot of pretty words, and i
. it just gets a little circular, but i do agree that support should include actions or statements whether public or non-public. that are trying to urge or encourage a particular outcome. i think that is the point of "support." and i'm also trying to think through if you have got a committee under state law that you have a primarily formed committee. i know. right. that this is creating a new animal only under scintilla, but is requiring that animal to file reports. all right, i will just keep thinking about it. if we haven't figured out the definitions we should try to get that right. it's dangerous to have a definition here that is complicated and interconnected and say that the commission may further adopt presto clarify this. i think we should get it right and not rely on having to go back later and define by regwhere we already have a definition that is intended to be comprehensive. >> because we so seldom try to do things right the first time? >> we should try. i'm being supportive. i will shut up for a while. >> i think commissioner studley is correct that the issue of the words
understand that was not count everied for action today and i think that that does make sense and i do hope that whoever is involved in the search sits down probably with each member of this body to really understand the diversity of perspective and what kind of qualifications we are looking for and so we can build a consensus on what we are looking for as far as leadership. and we should take this opportunity of the transition as we consider the future leadership to take a step back and think about how we can make sure that this governing structure it the most effective wave that we can look at this and if there are other ways, that other cities, can help add to a government structure and that will make sense here and i would like to engage in that conversation and make thur that all of us provide feedback and a little bit of research on that. >> thank you, commissioner. >> and when they say that my plan is that as we convene, a meeting of the personnel committee, and in the very near future and i will figure out as to when the timing of that and i would ask at that point, staff to provide

on both sides of the aisle an understanding that we have to take action. not to act governor, i believe makes this congress complicity. because we know this will happen again. as we've seen throughout too many of our cities, and with too much heartache and too many vigils like we experienced today, lowering the flags at half mass, having a moment of silence, people's sincerity and surely their heartfelt thoughts to everyone in newtown are accepted and are wonderful. what is required of elected officials is action. now is the time to act. this is a match that cannot be postponed, and we are complicit congress is complicity if we don't take deeper action. i know it requires dialogue i know as your mayor of new york city indicated restrictions on guns and i have an understanding that we can bring the nra along on this with universal background checks and with respect to assault clips that's the only way you can refer to the magazines that people are able to carry. they have no value in hunting. when terrorists are able to get a gun. when people on a terrorist list are able to get a gun, co

. >> the voices of reasons cannot be silent. through administrative action we must limit the proliferation of automatic weapon that have no purpose other than to kill citizens. >> the newtown tragedy could be a tipping point for some pro-gun lawmakers. >> reporter: the numbers are striking, 8,500 people died each year in gun violence. since columbine, more than 30 mass murders. the latest is chilling. >> shame on nra. >> reporter: as protesters gathered outside of washington, the nra declined to comment on the debate. but there were signs that they have. joe manchin, a life long nra member said he's rethinking his position. >> i don't know anybody that goes hunting with an assault rifle. i don't know anybody that needs those types of multiple clips as far as ammunition. >> reporter: and joe scarborough, now an nbc host also reversed himself on gun control. >> politicians can no longer be allowed to defend the statistic customer quo, they must instead be forced to defend our children. >> reporter: at least one texas republican defends the rights of owners. amid the talk of gun control, gun
line. it says if you engage in a wongful action, there is a defense called the insanity defense which never works as most of us know because we don't recognize it. should we recognize it, that's an interesting question. should we have a more robust concept of diminished responsibility in light of the understanding that some people have less control over their preferences and desires or should we have better sentencing schemes or get rid of incarceration and come up with different models of trying to deal with punishment once we understand people have wrong selections. i think those are all interesting questions, but is there free will? well, the fact that almost everybody in the audience raised either their right or left hand contemplated it and were quickly able to act and respond. that to me says, yes, there is. now what do we want to do about it? now that we understand that those of us in the audience or up here that like chocolate cake may not have control over it, how do we want to account for that if at all in the criminal justice system? to date, we haven't. in the future, we m
to see it in action. >> you are welcome. >> today the senate banking committee examines private stock trading in the practice a dark pool trading. the volume or selling of large stocks and private exchanges. witnesses include the sea 00 of the year rednecks stock exchange. live coverage starting at 9:00 on c-span3. >> one of the things that did surprise me a little, i did not conduct a nationwide survey of gun owners but among people with guns that i talk to, very often the reaction your way of thinking before and after you have a gun is very different. i think in the law-abiding gun owner realizes when he has a gun that it is a huge responsibility. if you use the weapon irresponsibly or wrongly, you could get yourself into legal trouble in cause unnecessary misery and death even to people you did not intend to do harm to. it makes you very careful or should make you very careful. for most people it does. i think it would pay -- make people more careful if they had to pass the test before they get a license to buy a gun. >> former new york times editor, critic whitney, on the history
long we have used politics and the second amendment to cover up our lack of action. yes, the supreme court affirmed we have a right to bear arms, but in that same ruling the court made clear that right is not unlimited. we do not, as justice scalia put it, have an unlimited right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever for whatever purpose. our individual right to bear arms is limited by a right among others to keep our children safe. any of those children could have been one of ours and for 20 parents, it was. we may not be able to stop every crime, we know that no single law or set of laws can prevent every act of senseless violence in our society, but we have the ability and the no-how to prevent many of them. we must simply find the courage. we can no longer be bystanders to injustice. we cannot continue to look on and do nothing. as shakespeare said, the fault lies not within our stars but in ourselves. we must act. thank you. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields. the chair recognizes the gentleman from washington, mr. mcdermott, f
from sandy hook elementary. last night, the president assured them he will take action, saying they are not alone. and, as we said, this week here at abc news, we will join the search for answers about gun violence in america. but we do begin this evening in a community that is shattered but holding on, and abc's dan harris, who has been there from the start, watched as the funerals began today. dan? >> reporter: diane, good evening. this growing carpet of cards and flowers and teddy bears behind me is a symbol of a community that is hoping, in the words of one of the signs here, that love will get them through this. first, though, they need to get through the funerals, which began today. today, in newtown, a funeral for 6-year-old noah pozner, who was eulogized as a boy who liked animals, video games and mexican food. he used to tell people he worked in a taco factory. at his funeral, an onlooker collapsed as the procession passed. inside, his mother shared stories that had everyone in tears. >> when she told him, i love you, his answer was, not as much as i love you. >> repor
inaction. that means he's committed. he is going on the record, some kind of action. >> that, of course, david letterman monday night addressing the horrific school shooting. good morning, i'm brian shactman this is "way too early." a lot to get to this tuesday, including new developments in the fiscal cliff negotiations. of course, with the year-end deadline less than two weeks away, the country's entire attention seems to be shifting to newtown, connecticut with lawmakers putting a renewed focus on gun control. first signs of a changing dynamic in washington. many believe friday's unspeakable acts in connecticut could mark a tipping point. the "washington post" reporting that president obama ordered cabinet members to order proposals to curb gun violence, a push that could include a new ban on assault rifles. sources say vice president joe biden will spearhead that effort. still the white house press secretary jay carney wasn't ready to unveil specifics. >> it's a complex problem that will require complex solution. no single piece of legislation no single action will fully
? next month? next year? next what? and if not us, who in this world will demand action to protect americans? joining me now is u.s. senator dick durbin of illinois. i want to read something from you which is very impressive and it's in the op-ed pages of "the chicago tribune." quote, what holds us back are political organizes that are well-funded, well-organized, and determined to resist even reasonable limb tathss. there's a close political parallel between the gridlock in washington on dealing with our economy and national debt and the eerie silence in congress as the list of horrific gun crimes grows by the day. senator durbin, thank you. i know you have got a good heart on this as well as a good head about fiscal matters. what's wrong with the congress when it comes to protecting, ensuring the domestic tranquility? >> well, there's a legitimate concern about our second amendment, chris. you understand that part. but there's also a very strong political force that is trying to push forward, primarily for the dealers and manufacturers h an agenda that will sell more firearms and
as possible, moving down that path is the right course of action for us. >> what boehner is proposing is extending bush tax cuts for everybody that makes less than $1 million a year. they say that will take the threat of tax increases off the table for most americans. but the white house and democrats up here on capitol hill have already rejected that option, guys. we're sort of at a little stalemate for this hour, maybe the next. >> there is some talking going on evidently. let's take you deeper inside the new proposals on the table, show you the differences. our senior economics reporter steve liesman has the fiscal clifferences. >> we're only going to do revenue. we're not going to do spending. come back tomorrow and hopefully get more spending. let's just do revenue. it's enough. >> clifferences. >> the first thing here, let's look at tax increases. what we understand with the new proposal of obama to raise tacks on those making $400,000 and higher, that would raise $600 billion in revenue. we believe the revenue side from the gop is $460 billion. just a warning on the gop. not ge
of legislation, no single action will fully address the problem. >> in the aftermath of the newtown massacre, a number of pro-and lawmakers are signaling a new willingness to soften opposition to restrictions on weapons. senator joe manchin of west virginia, a longtime advocate of so-called gun rights, said when it comes to gun control, "everything should be on the table." virginia senator mark warner said he would back a stricter rules, calling the massacre a game changer. senate majority leader harry reid said the massacre will prompt tictac meaningful conversation and thoughtful debate about how to change laws and culture that allow violence to grow." in a statement, democratic congress member of kentucky apologized for being "largely silent on the issue of gun violence," adding "i am not sorry for that as i am for what happened to the families who lost so much." at a news conference, new york mayor and gun control advocate michael bloomberg urged meaningful action from washington. >> gun violence is a national epidemic a national tragedy that demands more than words. we're the only indus
of counsel section applies to similar actions commenced on or after the date of this legislation's enactment. why is that important? well, pause the america invents act created a new section that prevents use of evidence of an accused fringer's failure to obtain advice of counsel or his failure to wave -- waive privilege and introduce such opinion. to prove either willfulness or intent to induce infringement. this provision, however, failed to specify when the new authority would go into effect. and it makes another series of other technical clarifications to the act. in addition, we find that this bill is necessary and has made the necessary commonsense technical corrections including any substantive revision to the act. so it's my hope that the judiciary committee will continue its oversight of the act into the next congress and consider ways in which it can be further improved. i commend the chairman of the committee for his -- this bill forward and i urge my colleagues to pass this legislation and i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan rese
by executive action or legislative action, we will convene such a commission. but, mr. president, i want to make very clear i am not offering this idea as a substitute for any action that we can take now, any action that the president can take now, for instance, with regard to the existing laws that are aimed at preventing people who shouldn't have guns from having them, keeping guns that really are military and are not part of hunting or sports shooting off the market. anything the president can do, anything congress can do. now, i would support a restoration of the assault ban today. these are weapons developed by our military originally, not by private industry for hunting or sport shooting purposes. they shouldn't be sold. we have got the background checks in the brady bill. if you attempt to buy a gun from a licensed federal firearms dealer, why shouldn't that exist for people who would buy a gun at a gun show, where incidentally terrorists we know have bought guns. so anything we can do quickly we ought to do. but i also think that a commission will make sure that we won't let the
, and as those killed in newtown are laid to rest, now is the time for action. >> that's the picture. that's the emotion that will pull this thing. >> the voices of reason cannot be silenced. >> record sales of these firearms. >> they advertise armor-piercing bullets. >> enough is enough. >> an ak-15, i'm not sure we need that. >> assault weapons account for less than 2% of the murders in this country. if you're in that 2%, you know, believe me, i understand that. >> do they want to be saying two years from now, which they will, and four years from now, as the party of glocks. >> the second amendment culture has been totally captured by extremists. >> i heard the governor of texas today wants every teacher to have a gun. >> you should be able to carry your handgun anywhere in this state. [ cheers and applause ] >> enough is enough. we begin as newtown, connecticut, memorializes more of its innocent victims. even as some children return to school, they are passing by the funeral processions of children their own age. this afternoon wakes are being held for 27-year-old first grade teacher vi
